Pooled Energy electricity
Sydney-based energy provider Pooled Energy offers a unique combination of electricity and pool automation services to households in the Ausgrid and Endeavour networks of New South Wales. By automating your pool, the company aims to reduce energy consumption and help you save on chemical and maintenance costs.
When you sign up and pay an establishment fee, the company will install new automation equipment and sensors that help monitor water quality and energy consumption. The system connects directly to the Internet to send you real-time alerts and optimise your pool based on the current weather. By closely monitoring the water, the retailer can also help you reduce the number of chemicals in the pool as you'll only have to add what the pool actually needs.
New customers must sign up for both electricity and pool services. However, eligible existing customers can cancel their pool services and keep only their electricity with the company.

Can I get solar power?
Yes, Pooled Energy offers solar feed-in tariffs for customers with solar panels. However, the company doesn't install solar panels.
With a solar optimisation service or Intelligent Pool Controller (IPC), the provider can save you money by using solar to run your pool only on sunny days. On rainy days, the pool will be run off-peak, and on days with mixed weather, the energy source will be determined by the IPC statistically. The IPC uses real-time weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology to stay up to date.
Does Pooled Energy offer GreenPower?
No, it isn't GreenPower certified.
How to set up pool automation
